School of Medicine rises more than 50 spots from 2022
Texas A&M University schools of medicine and public health have been ranked in the top 50 of U.S. News and World Report’s Best Graduate Schools. The annual publication ranks hundreds of colleges and universities throughout the United States and compiles a list that is published on the U.S. News website. Both schools are part of the university’s comprehensive health science center, Texas A&M Health, which advances health profession education and training, health research and clinical care.
Texas A&M School of Medicine has been ranked 44th Best Medical School: Primary Care in the U.S. News and World Report’s Best Graduate Schools for 2023-2024.
“We are very proud of our efforts to grow primary care in both our urban and rural locations throughout the state,” said Amy Waer, MD, dean of the Texas A&M School of Medicine. “This ranking emphasizes our dedication not only to our students but also to our communities through our research and innovations to address the health care challenges of today and the future.”
The Texas A&M School of Public Health has been ranked 36th out of 206 in the Best Public Health Schools category and 27th for Healthcare Management Programs.
“The Texas A&M University School of Public Health is positively impacting the lives of the populations and communities we serve through our groundbreaking research. The students we educate are prepared for transformative careers that improve the lives of others,” said Shawn G. Gibbs, PhD, MBA, CIH, dean of the Texas A&M School of Public Health. “These rankings simply recognized the quality of our programs and research, and that Aggies who graduate from the School of Public Health are leaders in the field who are pushing public health forward through selfless service.”
Rankings are calculated through specific criteria for each category ranging from research activities, faculty resources and reputation. A peer assessment survey is also distributed to deans, faculty at accredited degree programs or schools and other administrators to determine rankings.
“These rankings are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our faculty and staff to providing quality education to our students,” said Jon Mogford, PhD, chief operating officer and senior vice president at Texas A&M Health. “Our programs are designed to develop caring and knowledgeable future health care leaders who can shape the future of health care.”
